I have it disabled due to too many people abusing it. It will return one day when I'm in a good mood. If the abuse and nonsense continues after that, I'll be removing it altogether.

This.

And I'm not going to be removing negative rep because I feel that if someone actually does deserve one. They should get it.

It's the following each other around to topics just to spam rep them that needs to stop. It's dumb, and if people can't use it right, they won't use it at all.

is it possible to put a limit on how much someone can rep a day? or how many times someone can rep a certain person?

It appears some people think REP is representing their Reputation, i think that's where the abuse is born.
It's clearly representing the offset value between previously thumbed up/down comments. No idea how people manage to derive a random opinion based statistical 'reputation from that.. No amount of numbers is going to alter my opinion of how useful or nonsensical someone has been to me.

Imo it seems the only way to stop the abuse would be to have it work like youtubes system where the most 'liked/thumbed up/relevant comments are pushed to the top, under the OP & the useless/thumbed down comments are pushed down.. & have no account of how many times your comments have been (dis)liked.
-This way still encourages people to be friendly, helpful & support ideas/comments by thumbs-upping, but doesn't make any sense to abuse it in either way as it will effect only the forum, not the individual.
